The Brick and Steel Border Counties formally launches its return to the British motorsport calendar today [1 April] as the 14 May event releases its regulations and more information on the Jedburgh based rally.

Due to the pandemic, the highly regarded forest rally has not been able to take place since 2019 but makes a welcome return this spring and the resurgence has attracted the attentions of some of the most popular rally championships in the country.

Sponsored by Glasgow based building firm Brick and Steel Construction and promoted by Hawick and Border Car Club and Berwick and District Motor Club, a fresh look to the 2022 edition will see crews tackle classic forest tests in the renowned and little-used Tweed Valley and Wauchope Forest complexes.

The picturesque market town of Jedburgh will play host to the traditional rally start ceremony before competitors head into the forests for six stages and around 45 miles of competitive action.

Stages include the little-used Elibank and Cardrona tests, both not used since 2017 and the famous Cardrona hairpin will be utilised for the first time since 1998. Blackburn Rigg, Riccarton and Craik are also classic Border Counties tests, bolstering an enticing list of names from the past and present.

Just over six miles of the forest tests will be double usage meaning entrants will be able to sample the renowned stages in first-class condition The picturesque market town of Jedburgh will play host to the traditional rally start ceremony before competitors head into the forests for six stages and around 45 miles of competitive action.

The rally is buoyed by the inclusion on the MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series calendar for the first time since the early 1990s, as well as the returning SG Petch ANECCC Rally Championship and Motoscope Northern Historic Championship.

Fans will be in for a treat, with ample opportunity to watch the action in the forests as well as the chance to get up close to the cars at the Jedburgh start and the event service area at the mid-point of the rally in the nearby St Boswells.  A traditional Scottish welcome will greet crews as they reach the finish ceremony which will also take place under the gaze of Jedburgh Abbey where the winners will celebrate victory with the traditional champagne spray.

Entries for the rally open on 1st April at 6pm and organisers are appealing for volunteer marshals to help with the safe and smooth running of the event.
